These suggestions are based on Research Data and my own personal experience where I get a
click-through ratio of over 8%.
*#1: Keep The Subject Line Short And Different:*
The shorter the email subject line-the better. Add a little mystery to it. If possible associate it
For e.g.: " John's $ 49.99 Refund!
The above subject line is what I use after my 5th
follow up for upgrading my eBook the Deluxe version.
Inside the body of the message the first sentence is the exact 'refund message' he will be getting if
the customer choose for a refund after upgrading. I have been receiving a click through ratio of about
7.5 to the URL,
*#2: Innovative Personalization On The Subject Line:*
Note the above subject line again!
"John's $ 49.99 Refund!
If the customer name is john,

Consider these two examples,
The usual one - Re: John, your income stream!

The second one is the one that I use to drive traffic to the 50%-commission affiliate program for
all my 38 info products. Again I get a click through ratio of 7.5% to the URL,

Using quotation in the subject line arrests a persons eyes on the subject line. e.g.: "John's $49.99 Refund!
